The fight is not yet over. 2014 will be another crucial year for Apple and Samsung. Both companies are expected to meet again in March as they face the next round of litigation over smartphone patents.

But according a court filing on Wednesday, Apple and Samsung met on Monday this week, January 6th, to talk about settlement opportunities. Apparently both parties have finally agreed to attend a mediation session which will be held on or before February 19.

A mediation, in law, is an alternative dispute resolution that involves a third-party - a mediator in this case - to assist the settlement. The court had previously ordered both companies to submit a proposal for mediation prior to the March trial date. It's worth noting that previous attempts of mediation between the two sides have failed. It seems that Apple and Samsung already got the hang of it.

Samsung was previously ordered to pay $930 million to Apple for infringing patents related to smartphone technology. The next battle will involve new devices, which could mean more charges for the losing party.

Reuters says that Apple has already paid roughly $60 million to its law firm to fight the tough South Korean rival. CEOs Tim Cook and Oh-Hyun Kwon will attend the mediation. Both companies declined to comment on the report
